Kenis Beatriz
Kenis Beatriz is 31 years old. She is the very responsible mother of a family who fully dedicates herself to her family. She lives with her husband and their only son, who is in school. Kenis has a little store which has been of great benefit to their economic stability. With the desire to improve, she has also begun a pupusa business (pupusas are filled corn tortillas, a typical Salvadoran dish). She makes pupusas from Monday to Sunday, especially taking advantage of the weekend, when the clientele increases. Kenis is applying for a loan through which she can invest in her pupusa business by buying larger quantities of corn, pork, cheese, beans, vegetables, and all the basic ingredients to prepare a larger quantity of pupusas and in this way improve her income.
